MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermonters will be allowed to fish without a license on free fishing day next month.

The annual event takes place Saturday, June 11 and includes a free family fishing festival in Grand Isle.

Vermont Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter says Vermont has a strong fishing tradition and world-class fishing in many of its lakes and rivers.

The 16th annual Grand Isle Family Fishing Festival takes place at the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with basic fishing instruction and an opportunity for kids to catch big trout in the hatchery pond.

Free fishing day coincides with the opening day of the regular bass fishing season.
